OKLAHOMA CITY — USA Softball, a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization, is seeking applicants for the position of Commissioner for USA Softball of Portland. This position becomes available immediately following the retirement of Commissioner Ron Boley with Junior Olympic (JO) Commissioner Dan Bennett currently acting as the interim Commissioner in Boley’s absence.
The USA Softball Commissioner should be an individual who is interested in serving as the principal liaison between the local Portland association and the USA Softball National Office in Oklahoma City.
